My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Impact Personal Safety, SoCal, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I'll just come right out and say it: IMPACT transformed my life! As a guy who's been called a "geek" and "nerd" for most of his life (badges I wear proudly btw), for decades I've lived in fear of a violent confrontation, or even setting a verbal boundary! And then, at age 60 I took the Men's Basics class and all that changed.
I found that our training was very similar to the Women's Basics class, except ours had a bigger de-escalation component as men who attack other men are often looking for a fight. I discovered that I actually can be a "bad ass" when it's appropriate, and it hasn't altered who I fundamentally am one bit! My life hasn't been the same since.
What really impressed me, and continues to do so, is the knowledge, caring, compassion and dedication of the staff. I've never seen anything like it in any other organization. I'm proud to call myself an IMPACT graduate and encourage everyone to check them out.
